LOVE

Love JJ’s philosophy !!

Used to LOVE THE SHOW

JJ I am so disappointed with season 3, I used to LOVE your show and I find myself going back to the other seasons for longer episodes. Over half of the five minute podcasts now consist of the introduction and commercials which only leaves about a minute and a half of content that’s useful. Even then, the information is no where near as useful as it once was. It’s just a bit vague and for someone who is new and trying to learn such as my self, I really enjoyed the longer podcasts where you or your guest were able to dig in and explain thoroughly. I’m not kidding when I say your show was life changing. Please please consider going back to your older format and longer episodes! I would love to keep learning! Thank you

No value

A four minute podcast with 2.5 minutes of advertising? Where is the value for the listener? There used to be meaningful interviews with experts that were worth listening to. This season is missing the mark for me.
